Following the rules and tips below will result in the best possible outcome with the least risk of unsatisfactory results from laser treatment.
DOWNTIME: The skin reactions seen after Excel V vary depending on what was treated. If redness or rosacea is treated, there is the most potential for downtime. Please plan accordingly and do not book a laser appointment if you cannot have downtime for 3-5 days.
BEFORE EXCEL V:
AFTER EXCEL V:
BRUISING: Unlikely from treatment. In fact, we treat bruising with Excel V and offer bruise treatment as a free service after filler injection.
IMMUNE SUPPRESSION: Excel V does not break down skin. It is compatible with immune suppression. Please discuss your condition with your Pure Dermatology physician before treatment.
PREGNANCY: We do not want to subject your unborn child to unnecessary stress, so do not perform Excel V during pregnancy.
BREASTFEEDING: Since topical numbing is not necessary, Excel V is compatible with breastfeeding.
COLD SORES/INFECTION: If you have a history of herpes or cold sores or a history of staph infection occurring anywhere on the face, please let us know before your appointment. Make sure to continue daily sun protection.
